Charizard by LindseyWArt Charizard by LindseyWArt
A continuation of my Pokemon series without the ridiculous title (aka, Who's that Pokemon).

Today it's Charizard that spawned out of pure boredom. Honestly, I had no plan to do this at all until a split second later I was like "hey, I should draw Charizard".

I should certainly embrace this spontaneity, lately I have been talking myself out of art because it's just more work for myself. I can thank school for that. >:C

Anyways, I hope you all enjoy and critiques are welcome. Thanks for looking!

This, in my personal opinion, is the best rendition of a charizard with believable features.  One of my favorite pokemon!!

That means a lot since there are tons of Charizards out there (plus this one is pretty old). Thanks a bunch Akuru!

This is what a real Charizard could look: Like a realistic animal, but still faithful to the original design. Something like Gareth Edwards had done to the newest Godzilla.

Yeah, how they were really bulky, and the faces had that almost canine look to them.

I like that you stayed true to his design and kept him fat. I see so many realistic interpretations of Charizard that are extremely thin and they try and make him all graceful and crap, when he is indeed a fatty. Awesome work!

I suppose that's kind of debatable. I mean sure he's fat compared to, say, Greninja or Scizor or other stick-figure Pokemon (and that's not even mentioning Gardevoir/Gallade) but compared to some of the other super-heavyweights, he's not that fat. Then again, I notice Gamefreak tends to change the weight of a lot of their Pokemon, and Charizard seems to be one of those that gets a little bit thinner over the years. You can't really tell me Charizard Y's fat either. Charizard X is... comparable in girth I guess.

This looks pretty good :D
Colours are also good catched
The only thing that I would like to critique is that the shadows should be turned around though the tail tip is making a lot of light and there its all black x)
But else its a great shot of chari :D

I agree, and I knew that for a while I just never bothered to fix it. :lol:

At the very least I could put lighting on the right side of Charizard's body to show some form of lighting happening instead of redoing the whole thing.

Overall I like this but it's not as awesome as some of your other pokemon, which is a shame cuz Charizard is my favorite Pokemon. I don't like his head; looks too much like an aligator and his lower body is too fat. I doubt he'll be able to fly.

LindseyWArt Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Fair enough opinion, but what would your ideal realistic Charizard look like?
Reply
:iconliltank:
LiLTank Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2012
Don't really know. But atleast a bit leaner and some bigger wings. And definitely bigger than the original; a dragon that's smaller than an adult is no fun.

Would you mind if I get a tatoo of this drawing ??? Since it's your art I thought that I should ask. I'm not going to sell it in a tatoo shop or anything it's just for me.

Hmm, the problem that I have with tattoos is people will be making money off my work to trace it on somebody else. I can't stop you, but I prefer if you don't. :(

Thanks for asking though!

I must say your style is mind-blowing! I know you must be a very busy individual, but my request: the three starters from Kanto region, please? Squirtle, Charmander, and Bulbasaur? Your art is amazing!
Reply
:iconlindseywart:
LindseyWArt Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
You are in luck because I have already done Bulbasaur. :D

I have done a few other Pokemon too if you want to take a look, they are: Lugia, Swampert and Nidoking.

Anyways, thank you very much, I appreciate it. :nod:

Think you could attempt a badass Primeape? He was my oddball favorite from the original generation, haha.

I can't say I like him as much as you so I don't think I'll take on the request, sorry. :/ Now a commission would be a different story.

As awesome as this is, it still pisses me off that Charizard is a chubby dragon. I mean, c'mon.

Very true, and that might be explained by the amount of time I spent on this (not very long).

Thank you very much anyways, glad you like it. :D

I think both the uncolored version as well as this version are just gorgeously done, not to mention detailed. You have certainly given justice to one of the best 150 originals :)
